Muir Middle School Takes National Spotlight in Commercials

By On April 11, 2013

Have you seen those AT&T commercials featuring first the kids and then the NBA legends sitting around a table being asked questions?

You think something looks familiar about the set, but are not sure?

You are right if you thought all of those commercials are shot right here in Burbank (of course, the Media Capital of the World) and you would even be more correct if you recognized any part of the Muir Middle School Library or Art Room.

The commercials have become a source of pride at the school.

In February, the four NBA Hall of Fame basketball players got together to shoot their commercials, which have become very popular, and there is talk that they may reunite for more in the future or that other stars might make it to the table.

Recently, Chelsea Clinton of NBC News was on the campus this past week as they shot a new series of commercials interviewing the main character who asks all of the questions.  According to Muir staff members, the former First Daughter arrived without any Secret Service escorts or bodyguards.  She spent some time talking talking to everyone who asked her a question and posed for everyone’s pictures. No word on when her report for NBC news will air.
